Surfs up! And Tofino on Vancouver Island's wild side is the place to find it. One of my favorite spots to stay is the Long Beach Lodge Resort.

Although I've never tried surfing before (watching old Gidget movies doesn't count), it would be fun to win this contest. The Discover Surfing Tofino Getaway Contest ends on April 6, 2010 at 9 PM PDT. The lucky winner will receive:

  • Three nights accommodation (double occupancy) at Long Beach Lodge Resort in either a deluxe beachfront room or a two-bedroom, fully equipped cottage
  • Private surf instructions for two and full equipment rental through the lodge's on-site Surf Club
  • Dinner for two in the lodge's Great Room
  • Daily home-baked continental buffet breakfasts for two

The prize package is valid from April 7-June 30, 2010 and is subject to availability. It can't be exchanged, transferred or substituted for cash. No purchase required, simply enter the contest here.

One should really take lessons from the more experienced locals like Bruhwiler Surf School, Westside Surfschool or Surfsisters. The owners grew up in Tofino and will take you to the best beaches to learn. Cox bay is not always the best beach for beginners. I love Long Beach Lodge but they should leave the surf lessons to the real surfers.
That's just my opinion.

Good feedback, thanks. If I won the prize I wouldn't even bother with the surf lessons, I'd just enjoy the lodge and watching the surfers. I heard Surf Sister is good ... thanks for the heads up on the other ones.
